Reuters seeks product liability reporter
Reuters is seeking an experienced reporter to cover litigation arising from major product defects and recalls in the automotive, pharmaceutical, consumer-products and other industries.
This busy, high-profile job will require immersion into the world of plaintiff lawyers, class action suits, corporate defenses and reporting on the various personalities and strategies that define the modern mass-tort machine.
The ideal candidate will help monitor day-to-day court filings and rulings, but will also be expected to proactively identify broader trends and bellwether cases as they develop. This journalist must be able to report deeply and write quickly and insightfully for both a general news audience and a more targeted readership of legal professionals.
The position, which is part of a team that includes experienced legal journalists, will offer an ambitious reporter the opportunity to gain or deepen expertise in a rich subject area.
It will primarily involve writing for Practitioner Insights, a news platform for customers of Thomson Reuters’ flagship legal platform WestlawNext, but the reporter will also be expected and encouraged to write distinctive stories for Reuters’ financial and consumer newswires.
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in legal and/or business news and in being part of a high-profile enterprise that is of strategic importance to the company.
